1-2-3 July challenge

The challenge this month at 1-2-3 is just brilliant!

Something about it seemed just perfect to me. Maybe because it had a nice 'wintery' feel about it? Funny thing is that when I started collating some supplies I very quickly came to the realisation that I don't scrap with navy. I had a few felt flowers (old, old, old Making Memories ones) and that was about it apart from some buttons. LOL! So I went through all my current patterned paper collections and dragged out anything and everything that had navy on it, grabbed some old denim children's clothes from the 'to be upcycled box' and set to work. I am so glad I did.

Extraordinary man

I don't want to go on too much about this layout but like I've said above, I am so glad I gave the challenge a go. I had this photo of my GB from when he was probably only about 18 months, perhaps two years old. I knew I wanted to scrap it with the challenge criteria but was coming up stumps for a way to work in the word 'extraordinary' as it related to him as a little boy. Then I had that light bulb moment for the title. Wow. Suddenly, for me, the layout took on a whole new meaning and I love, love, love it. Thanks for the inspiration (again!!) 123!

If you're keen to give this challenge a go you can find all the details HERE. Happy scrapping!!!!    :)
